Would recommend the 2 day Desert tour to anyone!! We really enjoyed our time camping in the desert and riding the camels. The time riding camels was just enough without being too much. The dinner in the desert was very good and the accommodation was simple but clean and great for one night. The tour was well worth it to... More

The museum is a bit hard to find even with a map but certainly worth a visit if only for the building, a well conserved old two story house with an atrium and roof terrace hidden away in the middle of Medina. Boucharouite is a hand woven rug tied of different pieces of fabric, which form abstract patterns. They were... More

If you`re visiting the Museum of boucharouite in Marrakech, you will first notice the beautiful calm that this place has. It`s also very good and helpful if you want to learn new interesting things about Moroccan culture. The combination between the design and the informative side really makes visiting this museum a one of a kind experience. The building is... More

After you visit the Medina, take the Judge's Street (Derb al Cadi) and visit this characteristic upper-class mansion, the home of a judge. You will find a most peculiar and interesting museum; Boucharouite art, decorative panels made of colorful cloth rags by berber mountain women during the winter months. The designs are not just appealing, they are... modern, amazingly so.... More

We went there without any expectations, but the place was really interesting and calm. A lot of different carpets with nice furniture and decor around. Looks fantastic. A nice terrace is upstairs to simply have a rest or drink green tea. A piece of calm in the middle of medina. If you would meet the owner, he can explain the... More

Musee Boucharouite is not a typical museum by definition but well worth the cost and search. It is easy to find if you follow signs and ask friendly shopkeepers, Be warned local kids will charge for their help. Set in small riad the Boucharouite rugs each have a unique artistic value and are imbibed with symbolism and expression you would... More

This place is tricky to get to and then, after paying an entrance fee you will discover that "museum" is probably not the correct word for this place. It is in half of a riad, the half that still looks like it is rented out to tourists. Yes, there are boucherite rugs here and there and there is a tiny... More

Such a hidden gem! We were lucky to have Patrick the owner show us around. It gave us a new appreciation of these poor man's rugs 'boucharrouite' and the beautiful stories behind them. The museum was very beautiful and well curated. Now I am inspired to make my own boucharouite! That was a beautiful encounter, thank you Patrick! It could... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our visit. The collection was beautifully curated and truly works of art. We were fortunate to meet Patrick the owner who told us the meaning and symbols behind the rugs which provided emotional stories of the women who created them. It gave us an authentic insight into the culture and art of the region.... More
